Davido, Lala Akindoju, John Ogu are among the celebrities on Twitter that led the backlash against Desmond Elliot, an actor-turned-politician, over his comment on social media regulation in Nigeria.


Elliot, who is representing the Surulere constituency in the Lagos state house of assembly, had earlier denied claims that he was pushing for a bill to regulate social media activities in the country.

But on Thursday, a video of the film star at a plenary session surfaced on Twitter, wherein he said there’ll be no Nigeria in five years if the vices of social media aren’t tackled.

His statement didn’t go down well with quite a number of Nigerians on Twitter, including prominent individuals — with Davido leading the bandwagon of users who lambasted the politician.


“Desmond Elliot just destroyed all the precious child hood memories he gave us in movies,” Davido wrote.

“Desmond Elliot called us all CHILDREN . Just imagine!!!!,” John Ogu, a Super Eagles star, wrote.
